Why bother with the augment at all? Just roll an exchange of the hero's affinity against the opponent's resistance (14 plus any defensive magic on the shield itself, should you want the hero to succeed more easily, or use one of the foe's ability ratings, if your aim is to give the hero a challenge) and declare the outcome a special effect.
I call this "using an ability other than the one with which you began the contest"...
